    it is hard to stay married when your are in the slow lane and racing for like 30th. to bad she could not keep him close, and still try to get a head into the stock car world, may be she should regress into the sprint car/midget world to get some real life experience in racing cars without down force!

    1. How does running 30th (as opposed to 10th or 20th) make it harder to stay married?

    So the number at the end of the national tv commercial is blowing up now....man. I gots me a chance withca girl...yeee buddy

  3. Running 30th makes it harder to stay married because you're probably more difficult to be around AND Danica does have that reputation for being high matentience, especially when things don't go well.

    Overall, I think this was simply a matter of time for her as it seemed like her husband probably felt like he was being phased out by her busy schedule and didn't have nearly enough time to be a wife. Sad news.
